We the Animals 2018 / A stunning coming-of-age drama

8.0
S
Staff

Three half-Puerto-Rican, half-white boys grow up in suburban New York in this personal movie shot on stunning 16mm film.

This movie follows the boys, often literally with the camera behind their backs, as their parents’ relationship goes through turmoil. The kids are often left unattended and have to fend for themselves. The beauty of We the Animals is illustrating how they grow-up swinging between the angry character of their father and the protective nature of their mother.

This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time, and I think I loved it so much because I was able to relate and feel for the main character (one of the boys). I really hope you will too.

beautiful film, the best I’ve seen in awhile, tinder and dreamy and showcases childhood as I remember it. feeling different and rejected from other kids friends or siblings is shown perfectly.
